    Looks like SNK finally got fed up with Sony's draconian 2D policies and is bringing Metal Slug to the Xbox instead. I'm glad that it's coming out, but also annoyed that it could have been released months ago if Sony had just approved it.

    Does anyone know what rationale Sony has behind their backwards policies? The main advantage the PS2 has over the Xbox is a large enough userbase to support niche games, so it seems foolish to not even allow them to be released.

    What, making publishers offer value for money with older 2D conversions instead of allowing them to shovel them out at $49.99? The discussions I saw suggested that the "spate" of 2D games recently blocked were blocked from release at full price - Sony would allow them at a budget price, but the publishers involved weren't interested.

    Shamelessly stolen from the Neo-Geo.com forum (great site for SNK fans):
